The Bonfire Prayer

Remember, remember, the Fifth of November

Gunpowder, treason and plot

I see no reason why Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot

Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, ’twas his intent

To blow up the King and the Parliament

With three score barrels of powder below

Poor old England to overthrow

By God’s providence he was catch’t

With a dark lantern and burning match

Holler boys, holler boys, ring boys ring

Holler boys, holler boys, God save the King

What shall we do with him?

BURN HIM
